YouTube star LadBaby shocked the nation last year when he beat Ariana Grande to claim the coveted Christmas number one.

And this year he's attempted to do the double with another pork-stuffed pastry tune.

The Hemelite, whose real name is Mark Hoyle, has announced the release of his new song I Love Sausage Rolls – a rewrite of Joan Jett's I Love Rock & Roll.

The single was announced on LadBaby's YouTube channel on Sunday, but won't be revealed in full until Friday, December 13.

Last year, the YouTube star captured the public's imagination with the comedy hit We Built This City On Sausage Rolls.

All of the proceeds went to The Trussell Trust, a foodbank charity, funding about 70,000 emergency food packages over the festive period.

I Love Rock and Roll was originally written and released by British-American band the Arrows in 1975, but didn't become popular until Joan Jett covered it in 1982.

If LadBaby's parody tops the chart, he'll be only the third act in UK chart history to have consecutive Christmas number ones.
